Throughout your experience as a homeowner, repairs and maintenance have probably come to demand your attention at some point. Some of these events may require new home air filters, repairing a noisy air conditioning system, or maybe just a general tuning of your home’s heating and cooling systems.
DIY air conditioning and furnace repairs may seem like a good idea, but they could end up costing you a lot more in the long run. Don’t leave the safety of your home in the hands of just anyone!
When it comes to repairing and maintaining your residential heating and cooling systems, see to it that they’re serviced with care by professional HVAC service providers. Remember, your home is not only an investment, but it’s also where comfort and safety reside.
Two Great Reasons Why You Should Leave Your Home HVAC Repair and Maintenance to the Professionals
Licensed and bonded HVAC technicians are dependable and held accountable.
Licensed HVAC technicians must undergo examinations that test their education, skill, and compliance with OSHA laws and regulations. Licensing demonstrates necessary compliance with local laws, as well as proper inspection of required equipment and materials. Additionally, licensed technicians are well educated on the necessary permits that may be needed for your specific project. And while you may not have plans for selling your property any time soon, changes in those plans will require inspections of your home and you wouldn’t want to be caught breaking code violations.
Hiring a licensed HVAC technician can also mean the following:
- Proper Workmanship – Licensed technicians will not only have the proper training but will also have the proper experience to do the job correctly.
- Proper Legal Measures – Unlicensed contractors that attempt residential repairs and maintenance are breaking the law. If unlicensed contractors fail to provide proper certification, there’s little chance that they will follow or comply with any other laws and regulations.
Unlicensed HVAC Technicians May Cost You More
Most likely, you’ve crunched the numbers and you’ve set a budget for your upcoming HVAC repair. However, you may not have counted the costs and financial liabilities in case of improper installations or accidents. Licensed residential HVAC service providers will usually come prepared in case of either event.
- Bonds – As an extra security, bonds are purchased by licensed technicians as an insurance to the consumer for any damages that may occur in the process of important home repairs and maintenance.
- Personal Liability – Accident can and do happen. Usually, licensed contractors are required to have Worker’s Compensation Insurance. However, this is not the case for an unlicensed contractor and that means any harm that may come to workers while on your property are your responsibility.
Understanding the importance of proper maintenance and repair is crucial to maintaining a safe home. For more information on licensing, check out the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance website. The website offers important information for public safety and also allows consumers to verify licensing for various contractors.
